ASUS Unveil its New ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro Gaming Router

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced the launch of the new ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro, a stylish gaming router that’s ready to deliver ultrafast WiFi 6 and 10 Gbps Ethernet to every type of gamer. – The GT-AX11000 Pro is designed from the ground up to punch through increasingly congested wireless airwaves and maintain low-lag gaming experiences, wickedly fast download speeds and vast signal coverage.

This coverage is expanded by leveraging ASUS RangeBoost Plus, and ASUS AiMesh compatibility allows users to combine AiMesh routers to create a whole-home mesh WiFi network or instantly augment an existing one in order to eliminate any dead spots. The second 5 GHz band includes new Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure 4 (U‑NII 4) support, which enables an extra high-speed 160 MHz channel for compatible client devices.

The GT-AX11000 Pro is easy to manage via the free ASUS Router mobile app, which gives any level of user intuitive access to the router’s arsenal of powerful features. There’s also an easy-to-use web-based interface that additionally allows the configuration of the new 10 Gbps LAN/WAN port.

Features

Massive WiFi capacity
The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro is a powerful 4x4x4 tri-band WiFi 6 router that delivers combined speeds of up to 11000 Mbps. Its two 5 GHz bands and one 2.4 GHz band are fully backwards-compatible with older WiFi devices, while newer ones can take advantage of advanced tech to improve connection speeds and signal strength. For example, the second 5 GHz band features additional U-NII 4 spectrum at 5.9 GHz, unlocking access to less congested airwaves and more consistent downloading and streaming.

The 5.9 GHz spectrum has gone unused until now, so users with U-NII 4-aware devices can avoid signal interference from nearby WiFi networks that must compete with each other at the lower frequencies. And previously, users could only access two 160 MHz channels in the 5 GHz band. With the GT-AX11000 Pro, they can access a third, high-power 160 MHz channel for greater network capacity—or for the backhaul capacity of their AiMesh network.

With a combination of full 160 MHz channels, OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, the GT-AX11000 Pro provides up to 4X-greater network capacity and efficiency in traffic-dense environments and heavily populated networks. Through this leading-edge tech, users can grant fast access to a dizzying number of devices, or they can supply ultrafast speeds to a particular connection.

High-tech options for wired users
For those who prefer an Ethernet connection, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro features not one but two WAN ports. These are rated for 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps, and the 10 Gbps port can easily be toggled to LAN operation to boost transfer speeds within the network. To keep up with that echelon of performance, two of the 1 Gbps ports feature link aggregation, which allows users to combine separate Ethernet connections into one that is even faster.

Add load balancing to this mix, and users are fully empowered to tap into a veritable ocean of network bandwidth, not to mention the ultra-high-speed internet services that are becoming increasingly available.

ROG routers are great for gamers
For both wireless and wireless setups, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro is made for gamers of all types, whether they play on PCs, mobile devices, or game consoles. ASUS-exclusive triple-level game acceleration stabilizes connections to prevent jitter, reduce lag, lower ping and increase speed for amazing gaming experiences. Gaming traffic is optimized at every network junction, from the user all the way to a game server on the other side of the world. Users can also show off their style with an ROG logo on top of the router that features customizable Aura RGB lighting and effects and is designed with the letters ‘ROG’ embedded into a sleek matte surface.

Access and security, at home or on the road
All ROG routers can be fully configured in a web browser or the ASUS Router app for mobile devices. This free app lets users check the status of the network even if they are away from home, create access for guests, optimize bandwidth for gaming and other functions, review potential security issues and monitor their kids’ online activities.

When users are away from their ASUS home network, they can also use the free Instant Guard mobile app. This lets them route their internet connection through the network via an encrypted VPN tunnel in just a few taps. This can make a public WiFi connection much safer to use, in every region of the world.

Last but not least, the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro features ASUS AiProtection Pro powered by Trend Micro, which offers exclusive commercial-grade security through a collection of privacy monitoring, real-time hardening against network intrusion, and in-depth parental controls—with no subscription fee

Where Can I Learn More?

At the time of writing, ASUS has not confirmed any specific regional release dates for the ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro nor how much we can expect it to cost when it does arrive with retailers. – Given that the base ‘non-pro’ version costs £479.99, however, I think it goes without saying that this new ‘Pro’ version isn’t likely to be less expensive.
